. i do know that -- so the atkins case was actually argued by a professor at the university of new mexico and he is constantly barraged by what's the best way to assess i.q., especially when you have these different tests and different measures, et cetera. i.q. is one of the most well studied things in psychology. so taking a brain scan and fitting your brain along a dimension and getting a value is just a slightly different way of doing it than giving you the tests and stuff like that. so i have not obviously testified to anything like that. i just tried to give that as an example. there is an enormous literature out there that is already peer-reviewed and published on i.q. there are dozens of papers. the big question is how well can i take a single person's brain scan and with what confidence can i get a number associated with it that we would derive an i.q. those measures and ways that we do that get better every month, basically, every year we're getting more and more accurate at taking a single piece of information or complex piece of information and fitting it. to my knowledg

new mexico asks the senator from nebraska to yield. mr. johanns: i will. the presiding officer: the senator. mr. udall: the senator from nebraska has talked about the rules not being able to be changed because internally in the senate rules, there is a provision that says you need a supermajority, two-thirds of the senate to change the rules. so this is the proposition that we are hearing argued by many senators that we're changing the rules to break the rules. breaking the rules to change the rules. we have heard that repeated several times over and over again on the senate floor. now, the other side of the argument, as the senator i think well knows since he worked up here and was around and saw senator bird, is that the constitution is superior to the senate rules, and the constitution specifically says that article 1, section 5, that each house may determine the rules of its proceedings, and statutory production applied to that means simple majority, determine the rules of its proceedings. this is a standard interpretation construction, and we know that supermajorities are

this committee, the senator from new mexico and the senator from virginia. our first secretary of the treasury, alexander hamilton, observe energy is a leading character in good government. the president must lead in a divided government and must not advocate his or her -- not abdicate hor or her responsibility. president obama has the responsibility to propose a real bipartisan plan to avert the fiscal cliff that can pass both the house and the senate. withdrawing from the recommendations of the simpson- from thewing recommendations of the simpson- bowles commission, the president could propose a plan that would not only avert the so-called fiscal cliff, but also help us avert the fiscal abyss. if president obama were to offer such a plan, republicans would act favorably. going over the cliff is unnecessary. as it has been observed in "the wall street journal," the president is boxing in the republicans. he is offering them a deal they cannot accept. first, the president has repeatedly called for a balanced solution involving both revenue and less spending. what is obvious to the most casual

of capital gains. the capital gains tax will go up 10%. host: john from new mexico. caller: thank you for taking my call. you read my tweet just a little while ago. i want to continue on this theme of the lower capital gains rate. this low capital gains rate is a way the uber rich use to control to give themselves their own tax rate and their own general tax category to there everything in. they can lessen their participation in our democracy. i have investments, too. to only have to pay a 15% rate on that income seems silly to me. i pay normal taxes and normal social security. there is no need to incentivize capital formation these days. host: are you retired? caller: i am still working. host: this is a story from "the wall street journal." host: "families with adult children." how can you take advantage if you're a couple and one spouse earns more than the other? guest: i would not want to delve into that. host: we will move on to jim in north carolina. go ahead, jim. caller: thank you for taking my call. the lowering to the $1 million cap. my wife and i have never made more than $6
senator from this committee, the senator from new mexico and the senator from virginia. our first secretary of the treasury, alexander hamilton, observe energy is a leading character in good government. the president must lead in a divided government and must not advocate his or her responsibility. president obama has the responsibility to propose a real bipartisan plan to avert the fiscal cliff that can pass both the house and the senate. withdrawing from the recommendations of the simpson- bowles commission, the president could propose a plan that would not only avert the so-called fiscal cliff, but also help us avert the fiscal abyss. if president obama were to offer such a plan, republicans would act favorably. going over the cliff is unnecessary. as it has been observed in "the wall street journal," the president is boxing in the republicans. he is offering them a deal they cannot accept. first, the president has repeatedly called for a balanced solution involving both revenue and less spending. what is obvious to the most casual observer is that this plan is not a balanced.
: in farmington, new mexico, a republican. smitty. this is if anybody wants to know how much money we waste, we recently had a guy in the northwest that won the lottery and took home $800,000 cash and went to his local food stamp office, told them he had won the money and they said he still qualified for food stamps. these people are nuts. the federal government probably has a very minimum -- and i've worked for government and i've worked in the utility industry, which is almost the same as the government, at least 40% overpaid. too many people working. at least 40% more people than they need to do the job. when these people say they're cutting the budget, they're not cutting a pink. they are cutting the growth in government. if congress does not vote themselves raising any more. they get automatic raises. unless somebody has the go nads to say we need a raise this year. they have not done that since they put that into effect. they don't vote on raises and more. host: your response? guest: i don't agree with all of youro fax ofncts. one can find instances of fraud and waste in the government as
. they can use it to help in their recovery efforts in the most flexible way possible host: new mexico has two air force bases, two national research allowance, and many folks are dependent on federal money for work and assistance programs. for her. -- it will hurt. , democratic caller. caller: explain the logic behind what taxing one of our biggest corporations, which is the religious work -- religious churches and all of that that make $10 trillion a year. and also, how come medicare pays for -- i think it is $1 billion now -- a formula enhancement drugs. that is a pleasure, not a need. -- for male enhancement drugs. that is a pleasure, not a need. host: independent caller, go ahead. caller: i would like to bring up the point that you have brought of the federal portion of the moneys and the money does not go -- come out of nowhere. that is the tax dollars, or has been borrowed, were printed. that money is not without cost. i would like to have your opinion on that. thet: you're referring to state's share that has to match the federal dollars, and yes, it has to come from somewhere. we h
washington post" -- again, this is a front-page story in "to washington post." next up is john in new mexico. john, tell us your story. caller: good morning. i was raised in texas, and my grandfather had a farm. a rite of passage is when a boy turns six or seven, you teach them how to shoot with a .22. we never had more than anything with three bullets in it. we would go out in the woods with two bullets sometimes and we could shoot two deer. that is all we brought. the man had two bullets in a double barrel shotgun. i just do not understand. right now i have a remington bicentennial 742 semi-automatic hunting rifle. it is probably the most beautiful rifle remington ever made. it shoots four. you can put three and the magazine. i have never needed more than one bullet. host: all that said, john, what changes would you support to the current gun laws? caller: we need to do away with all of these big clips. you take any gun and put a big magazine in it, you make it a war gun. who buy these guns and there are so many people buying guns that do not have any business owning a gun. who's to say wh
this if they can find an 18-year-old to go with them. host: we have a call from debbie from new mexico. caller: i'm on the air? host: go ahead. caller: your comments about the medications making them so sullen. i work in a psychiatric facility for juveniles and you're right they stop being suicide al. but instead they become extremely aggressive. aggressive to the point where the courts petition to get them out of the jail because they can't handle them because they're so aggressive. host: let me clarify. is that after they take anti-depressants? caller: yes they do. i work in a sike facility in albuquerque. and we have killers there. and they stop the depression stops but they become -- because of these anti-depress nths that they take. we have one machine in the whole united states that actually measures seratonin. other than that they're being prescribed like m and ms. they all have a fixation with guns. we do have killers in the facility. and this idea that this is the meds are going to make them sullen, no, your information is correct i'm on the front lines working with these kids and no as
. president? the presiding officer: the senator from new mexico. mr. bingaman: are we in a quorum call, mr. president? the presiding officer: we are not. mr. bingaman: mr. president, earlier today, the senate voted to grant permanent normal trade relations to russia by a vote of 92-4 and i strongly supported that bill. to extend pntr to russia, we had to repeal an out-of-date policy that was adopted during the cold war. that is, the jackson-vanik amendment. i want to speak briefly on the senate floor this afternoon about another out-of-date policy of the cold war that i believe should be ended, and that is the trade embargo on cuba. i have spoken about this many times in the past, along with senator pell, senator dodd and many others. i argued against the helms-burton act in 1996. for the past 50 years, our country's policy toward cuba has been essentially stagnant. the core element of our policy, our foreign policy, which is the embargo, has authorized in a proclamation signed by president kennedy on february 3, 1962. that's 51 years ago. at that time, president kennedy justified the emba
